Senator Isah Misau (APC-Bauchi Central) on Monday denied claims by the police force that he is a deserter and has a case to answer.
Misau, the chairman, Senate Committee on Navy, said his exit from the police force was done according to the rules as laid down in the Police Act regarding resigning from the Nigeria Police Force.
This was disclosed in a statement where he described the Police reactions to the “weighty issues” raised by him as “cheap propaganda to obfuscate the real issue”.
Misau stated this on Monday in Abuja, in reaction to a statement by the Police that he did not follow due process in exiting the force.
He described the allegation of the police against him as “propaganda” aimed at distracting Nigerians from the real issue.
Not wanting to join issues with the incoherence of the Force Public Relations Officer, the police have always known my whereabouts since my resignation.
Moreover, I have been in the Senate for about two and half years without any mention of my desertion until my innocuous caution against practices capable of destroying the Police Force.
It is beyond curiosity that the Police will be looking for someone clearly in the plain sight for these past years.
Little wonder the proliferation of crime in the country and the Police apparent cluelessness, especially under its current leadership.
